doesn't look that apparent in the photo but the smaller ones, which used to look lively and healthy, now look limp and frail.

is it possible the one big guy is taking over, and if so, what should i do?

thanks!

Since they have their 2nd set of true leaves I would put them in a bigger container. It also appears that they are planted in straight peat moss. Transplant them into a larger container containing a balanced potting soil. When they get a couple of more pair of true leaves start fertilizing with a good organic fertilizer. And sometimes the genetic makeup of a seed allows it to just be a bigger plant.

I agree with Chuck, gently remove from the pot they are currently in and pot them in a larger pot.
